What Does the LDAP Plugin Do?
The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) is the common standard protocol for accessing directory services. The tenfold LDAP plugin allows you to manage users and permissions in a wide range of LDAP-compatible services.
In addition to Windows Active Directory – for which tenfold provides pre-built interfaces – LDAP is used by Oracle’s Internet Directory (OID), Novell eDirectory and the open source platform OpenLDAP. No matter which directory service you use, the LDAP plugin enables tenfold to create, modify and remove users and permissions automatically in any of these services.

Self-Service & Workflows
Users can request additional rights and assets themselves through tenfold’s self-service portal. Approval for such requests is retrieved from data owners through customizable workflows.
Reporting & Documentation
tenfold is able to produce detailed reports, giving admins an immediate overview of all user and object permissions, even breaking down nested groups.
